At least three people were injured late Saturday afternoon as strong wind gusts toppled trees and downed power lines across Sonoma County. Around 5:40 p.m., a large eucalyptus tree fell on a vehicle as it was traveling west of Fulton on River Road, just west of Slusser Road, according to Matt Coxon, an off-duty paramedic who assisted at the scene along with several other passersby. Emergency crews, including Sonoma County Fire, Sonoma Life Support and California Highway Patrol, responded to the scene shortly after.
